Martinez Looking For New Striker

Martinez Looking For New Striker

Roberto Martinez says he is continuing his search for a new striker as he has just two senior forwards available for Saturday's trip to Tranmere.

He said: 'With only two first-team strikers in Lee Trundle and Pawel Abbott available, we are skating on thin ice,'

'We do have Chris Jones, who needs to be involved with the first team on a regular basis because he is a good player for the future.

'But it's dangerous having only two senior forwards and getting some cover in could be important.

'The problem is, of course, that everyone wants a striker who can score goals straightaway, and they're not easy to find.'

'We need another striker, but it has to be a person who is ideal for us,'

'Kevin Reeves has a big part to play along with myself and Graeme Jones. We are watching games to see who is in form right now, because that's the most important thing.

'We need someone to come in who is ready to go into our first team and perform.

'We don't want someone who could be a good player potentially - that's for further down the line.


The Swans boss also mentioned that they doing extra shooting practise in training after missing a host chances during last Saturday's 0-0 draw with Leyton Orient.

He added: 'We had 18 attempts, eight of which were on target, and with that many opportunities you would expect to score,'

'A main subject in training will be finishing, but we have to remember that if we play like we did against Leyton Orient, nine times out of 10 we will win.'

John Hartson is probably being paid Premiership wages in the Championship with West Brom. He will not come to us (can't afford him) as he has previously declined to join "his boyhood club". Some players, eg Marcos Painter, came on loan to Swansea as he wanted to play regular football and not be in the reserves.
